    Lightbulb I would trade Lee before his Value drops more then it already has

    I keep sayin it, his problems are in his genes. Once upon a time, David Lee was considered to be a good athlete and he won a dunk contest in high school.

    Nowadays, he cant buy a rebound. Every year it seems like these players get quicker, faster, and more athletic. I see Lee losing alotta rebounds because dudes are jumpin over him. He keeps gettin all his shots blocked, and hes not that good of a defender. With his value droppin, the sooner we trade him the better off we are. I would trade him for Kendrick perkins....or even leon powe.

    one good thing about it is that he cant get that contract that is being speculated, probably resign em for a cheap price but i agree wit the thread...david lee just doesnt look the same to me anymore and now he's brickin his FTs again, something is buggin em, maybe the contract issue is affecting his game, idk

    Default My last Two Threads in one reply!

    I created a similar Thread stating this same thing. But also what Donnie Walsh now has to be leary of is teams thinking he is trying to move Lee because his numbers are dropping. Donnie has to be able to convince teams that he is only looking to move Lee if we get a good player (a shot blocker like Camby is my idea) in return. So here is the line Donnie now has to walk, he has to let teams know David is available (if he is indeed available) without looking desperate to move him. I think we could get The Clippers to throw in a 2010 first rounder in a trade of Lee (Rose for cap reasons) for Camby.

    Clippers:
    Davis
    Mobley
    Thorton
    Lee
    Kaman

    Likely not an impact team this season, but could be very good next year making it a bit easier to swallow a lost pick that year.

    Knicks:
    Duhon
    Jamal
    Wilson
    Zach
    Camby
    Bench:
    Q
    Nate
    Jefferies

    Insert Q as starting SG and this is a pretty good two way team!

    I have no problem with trading Lee. He's a nice player but hes nothig more then a good hustle guy off the bench. He's offensive game is limited and once he gets allittle older hell lose that athletism he has and he will decline quickly.

    I wouldn't give him away for nothing, i'd like cap space and or another draft pick but i'd have no problem trading him. I think Nate Robinson has proven to be the guy we need to resign not Lee. That said if Lee was realistic and took a contract thats near his value i wouldn't mind keeping him around.

    I like the idea New York New York but i don't think the Clips would give up Camby for Lee.

    Its too early to give up on Lee honestly.

    Lets decide on this in Jan.

    I don't think Lee's value has dropped much. He's still considered a hustle player that can rebound and score around the basket.

    The only reason why I want Lee traded is, because we could possibly package him with Curry. Curry makes 31 million, over the next 3 years, so it would be nice if we could eliminate Curry's contract and sign a real center.

    I don't think that his rebounding is based on his vertical leaping ability. Rebounding is all about instinct and he has got that instinct. However I can't see much development lately as far as his overall game is concerned. I had high hopes that his jump shot would improve over the summer but I guess if you got that far (NBA) without a decent jump shot there must be a reason why he can't get it to fall consistently. Must be the same as with Shaq's free throws.

    If there would be any real chance of getting a healthier cap situation and to keep Lee, I wouldn't trade him and rather give him extension. But I don't see this coming. I do also think that Robinson is more important for D'Antoni's system so we have to decide wether to resign Nate oder Lee, both simply won't work. One of them has to be packaged with Curry's contract.

    Yeah I believe that we should look into trading Lee. I think Lee is a great hustler but his inability to hit a medium range jumper and not big enough to handle an athletic big man and too slow to handle an athletic small forward makes him not a good choice for the future of this team. His rebounds have gone down and smaller slower Zac is out rebounding him at this point.

    Maybe off the bench he would be good but he will have be careful what we offer him by way of contract.

    Well, it seems we finally agree on something.

    My sentiments exactly. Lee will end up another Najera that gets shipped around. Appreciated at every step but ultimately expendable. He succeeds via effort and heart. His weaker points are often exposed by better players. Still, he would add to a package nicely to free the Knicks of alot of cap room. I think we've seen his best.

    I still rate him though.

    Gotta happen.
